 From RFC 6449:

   "This document may not be modified, and derivative works of it may not
    be created, except to format it for publication as an RFC or to
    translate it into languages other than English."

As a note to John Levine, RFC 6449 clearly says that "it does not 
represent the consensus of the IETF."
